Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week a new Top Ten list will be posted. Everyone is welcome to join. Link back to The Broke and the Bookish so everyone can check out other bloggers' lists. It's a fun way to get to know fellow bloggers.
This week is a Top Ten freebie and I decided to go with books featuring islands. Books set on islands or in which islands play a prominent role. Why islands? I really don't know! It just came to me so why not?
I loved this one and this is partially set on a deserted island.
An elite boarding school on an island??!?
An Ice Age setting and an island plays a prominent role in this one!
Genetic engineering and a forbidden island- yes please.
Stranded with a killer!
Lots of islands in this one.
Australian setting with a cool island element.
Set entirely on an island.
Set on the isle of Skye as well as Edinburgh.
LOL Islands are fun. I'd totally pick the new series from Melinda Leigh that has the awesome island covers.ReplyDelete
Oooh islands! Definitely a good choice. Every time you mention Obsidian and Stars, I want to read the thing, so that's rude hah. I *need* Echoes. I think I have been saying that for a long time, but one of these days! I have A Map For Wrecked Girls and Vitro, so again, one of these days! And I have heard some good things about Wreck, I might have to add that one to my list too. Great list!ReplyDelete
Ten! I think that one got turned into a movie but I've always wanted to read that one for the killer on the island. 😂ReplyDelete
I've heard so much about Echoes. Every time I see it featured on your blog, I'm that much curious to try it out. And now that I know it takes place on a deserted island...one of my favorite tropes!ReplyDelete

I REALLY have to get to Fear the Drowning Deep. So many books, so little time.ReplyDelete
A very fun list Greg! I really liked Ten. My TTTReplyDelete
Hey, if islands is the idea that came to mind, you go with it! I often find it more difficult when there's a "freebie" Top 10 topic because the pressure is on to find an interesting topic. :DReplyDelete
I've looked at 'Wrecked for Girls' at the store before, but something always holds me back from buying a copy.
Aw I love this! Now I want to be somewhere warm and have my toes in the sand instead of looking at snow lol! I didn't realize that Obsidian and Stars had an island in the book, I really need to go pick up that series! :)ReplyDelete

Letters from Skye sounds good. Echoes make my TTT this week too, although I wrote about books that deserve more love.ReplyDelete
Great list! I haven't heard of a lot of these and to be honest I don't think islands are a setting I read a lot - I'll have to check some of these out.ReplyDelete
Ah, you always make me want to add new books to my tbr list.ReplyDelete
Oh nice topic pick! And yay Echoes! Loved that book! Still need to read Sanctuary Bay though! Ten was another great read!ReplyDelete
Here's my Tuesday Post
Have a GREAT day!
Old Follower :)
I would not have thought of a topic like this on my own, and I love it! Good job! Fear of Drowning Deep is a book I want to read. Seen some people who matter say it was great. Maybe I will hit it up one of these days for One Old, One New.ReplyDelete
Fun topic, Greg! An elite boarding school set on an island? Now that sounds sinister right from the start. LOLReplyDelete
Islands are always a good setting for horror and thriller books! I've read a few I liked with dinosaurs, sharks and monsters! Nice theme and I might check out the blurb on a couple of these!ReplyDelete
Hah! I love this topic! I've never seen anyone do an islands list before. I feel like I need to take a note of all of these for summer reading. Fear the Drowning Deep has been on my TBR for ages though.ReplyDelete
my TTT this week
Love this topic! I haven't read any of these, but I'm going to add Letters from Skye and Fear the Drowning Deep to my tbr. Here is our Top Ten Tuesday.ReplyDelete
I have never heard of Letters from Skye! I love anything Irish! Love the topic. I couldn't think of one so i just posted pics of dogs lolReplyDelete
I'm dreaming of islands this time of year LOL so I can see why it you may have chosen it as as theme. :-) I remember reading On the Island by Tracey Garvis Graves and how the island setting is almost like a character in the book.ReplyDelete
Who knew there were so many island books. Great topic.ReplyDelete
No Shutter Island?! ;) Technically, every book set in the UK or Japan (or plenty of other places!) are, in fact, set on islands ;)ReplyDelete
Great idea for a list! I've read Ten and Sanctuary Bay and enjoyed both but didn't love them. I really want to get to Echoes at some point😁ReplyDelete
I love books set at sea, or featuring epic sea voyages.ReplyDelete
An elite boarding school on an island is a recipe for disaster... Great book fodder!ReplyDelete
I don't remember the last time I read a book that featured an island as the main setting for the story! The cover for Vitro looks fascinating :)ReplyDelete
I've been meaning to read Fear the Drowning Deep since it's release. Love the choice of topic.ReplyDelete
A few of the books mentioned in your post your on my reading wishlist!ReplyDelete
Here's a link to my Top Ten Tuesday post for this week: https://captivatedreader.blogspot.com/2018/12/top-ten-tuesday-top-ten-free-little.html
Oh islands!! I love islands in books. Fear the Drowning Deep looks good!ReplyDelete
Islands in books sound like a lot of fun and a lot of adventures! I have not read any of these books, but maybe books with islands should be something worth exploring!ReplyDelete
I love books that are set on islands so I applaud your choice! :DReplyDelete
Oh man, Greg. I think I've only ever read TWO books which take place on Islands! O_o Anne of Green Gables and Island of the Blue Dolphins. I obviously have to expand my settings. Which of these books would you recommend I pick up first?ReplyDelete
You can check out my TTT here: http://deathbytsundoku.com/top-ten-tuesday-reasons-i-keep-blogging/
Such a unique idea, I love it! Vitro sounds super intriguing and oh no, I've just gone and added it to my never-ending TBR.ReplyDelete
There's something kind of mysterious about islands, great list!ReplyDelete
I like that you have a unique theme this week for your freebie! Island settings are great for horror books because its so hard to escapeReplyDelete
Oh, cool topic! I love books set in remote places. So many weird and wonderful things can happen.ReplyDelete
Aj @ Read All The Things!
Very cool topic. Islands always intrigue me too. I think it goes back to my obsession with the TV series Lost a few years back, lol.ReplyDelete
Ten still sounds intriguing. 👍✨ReplyDelete
I'm loving your topic choice, islands are cool settings because it sort of keeps everything contained, which is something I love in books. Sanctuary Bay sounds awesome, as does Vitro! Vitro reminds me of this book called Dr. Franklin's Island that I read when I was a kid. Love this one, I'm going to have to check some of these out...ReplyDelete
"Why not?" is pretty much my reasoning for everything on my blog :-P Islands do have a unique kinda vibe in books because of how they usually make the characters more isolated. I've always loved the covers for Vitro and Ten!ReplyDelete
You do ejoy island tales, i actually nevet thought of it like a genre of sortsReplyDelete
I love books set on islands! I'm in the middle of a Jenny Colgan series that takes place on a tiny little Scottish island. I need to read Letters from Skye. It looks so much like my kind of book.ReplyDelete
Really cool topic choice! Some of these are even on my TBR! :)ReplyDelete
But how did you decide on islands...Freebie topics are so hard for me and I swear all you other bloggers make them look so easy. Hope you have a great weekend. - KatieReplyDelete
